oudairy or artificial flavors., so we invented a word that means that. shmorange! and it rhymes with the color of our bottle. hey, baby, make it your first word! (baby babble) not even close. reach for the orange, it's 100% shmorange! our vitamins contain no gluten, dairy or artificial flavors. so we invented a word that means that. shmorange! and it rhymes with the color of our bottle. to help spread the word, we made t-shirts! reach for the orange, it's 100% shmorange! but we mean so much more. we mean how can we help? we mean what can we do?
there's no question the obama administration's greatest failure is allowing isis to run wild, murdering thousands of innocent people all over the world, including many muslims. mr. obama has never, never acknowledged that mistake. nor does he define the isis threat accurately. that group is killing innocent people in order to impose a radical version of islam on the world. the jihad is solely based on theology. perverted as it may be. president obama, as we all know, will not even use the words islamic terrorism. again, today when telling the nation that the u.s. will maintain thousands of troops in afghanistan, the president did not accurately describe the situation there, putting forth that it was more about politics than terrorism. >> that is why the united states will strongly support an afghan led reconciliation process and why we call on all countries in
the region to end safe havens for militants and terrorists. >> but they are not just militants and terrorists. they are islamic driven killers who protected al qaeda before the 9/11 attack. yet the president of the united states does not define the terror issue clearly. here's why. barack obama's father, who abandoned his family, was a muslim who turned atheist. then his mother married another muslim, moving to berry to indonesia where he was exposed to the islamic world, even though he did attend a catholic school in first grade. according to his half sister, barack obama attended his half brother's wedding in the '90s, malik obama was a muslim. "the factor" has attained pictures from that wedding,
which we believe was held in maryland. details on the ceremony, the location, whether the reports that barack obama was the best man are very difficult to verify at this point. what we can tell you with certainty is that barack obama has deep emotional ties to islam. >> as a boy, i spent several years in indonesia and heard the call of prayer at the break of dawn and at the fall of dusk. as a young of man, i worked in chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their muslim faith. >> now, to some extent, i can identify with president obama on the religion issue. as a roman catholic, i was appalled when the priests pedophilia scandal broke. there's absolutely no excuse for the catholic church covering up many horrendous crimes. however, like barack obama, i do make the distinction between the
faith and the people who abuse it. >> the church is not the men who run it. the church is the theology behind the doctrine of jesus, and the country is the abiding philosophy behind the constitution. and i think if everybody understood that, you could put it in perspective. >> but here's where i depart from the president. i went after the american leaders of the catholic church with a vengeance. >> as we now know, the leaders of the catholic church in america covered up the sexual abuse. it's my opinion the cardinal in boston could be arrested and charged with criminal negligence. remember, he admits to transferring pedophile priests to place where they still had contact with children. americans have the right that authorities take care of cardinal law, not the pope, a man who aided and abetted the molestation of american children. we have the right, every
american citizen, to demand that this cardinal law is removed. it's way beyond just catholics. >> law was eventually booted out of boston, but then given a cushy job in rome, another embarrassment for the catholic church. barack obama should do what i did, call out those who abuse the muslim faith, who commit atrocities under a religious banner. he should make defeating the jihad a central issue. and stop trying to diminish islamic terrorism by avoiding the simple truth. radical islam is a direct threat to the entire world! whether they live in afghanistan, iran, iraq, syria, or africa. it is islamic killers who are the central problem on the planet. president obama should acknowledge that today. and begin to correct his mistakes. and that's the memo. when we come right back,
continuing now, president obama and his relationship with islam. joining us from chicago, david mandell, author of "obama from promise to power." so where am i going wrong here, mr. mendell? >> well, bill, i don't necessarily disagree with everything you had to say. but one thing i will say that just because president obama attended the wedding of a relative who was a muslim doesn't necessarily mean he has deep ties to islam. >> you couldn't say that if your father and stepfather, both islamists, and then your half brother and half sister, both muslims, you wouldn't call those
deep ties? >> well, they are ties. president obama is a very unique cultural figure. he has ties to various worlds. he has ties in the african-american world. he has ties to kansas where his mother was born. he himself is a devout christian. i would follow him around -- >> whoa, whoa, whoa, devout christian? he doesn't go to church on a regular basis. how did you arrive at that assessment? i believe he's a christian, i'm not one of these guys who says he's a muslim. but i don't think he's a devout christian. >> well, he would go along the campaign trail here in iowa, he would have the holy bible sitting in the door compartment of his vehicle and refer to it consistently. he and michelle would attend services of -- you can go back to jeremiah wright if you want -- >> i don't know if that's devout in jeremiah wright's church.
>> but he's given expensive interviews about his beliefs in christianity. >> but what you say and what you do are not necessarily the same thing. i base my analysis that in my opinion, and i could be wrong, but i'm not, president obama's sympathetic treatment of muslims put the country in danger and he allowed isis to be created because of his foolish decision to withdraw troops in iraq and to pretty much run wild for five years. so another president, you know, angry about the jihad, would not have done that. am i wrong? >> well, i think president obama is very sympathetic to all cultures, all religions. he grew up in a -- >> is that good for a commander in chief to be sympathetic for all cultures and religions when thousands are being murdered? >> obviously you think it's a bad quality. >> you don't?
>> well, i think he is a unique figure in that he can see various viewpoints. >> he's the commander in chief of the country -- wait, wait, mr. mendell. he's the commander in chief of the united states and his main charge is to protect us. it's not to be touchy-feely for all these different cultures. >> and he's being criticized by the left, by human rights groups for his drone policy, by killing what i would assume are mostly muslims through drones in the middle east. so i think his language is very cautious. yes, he's a cautious man. he's the president of the united states. he's always been a cautious politician with his language. but i think it's a little unfair to say that because he grew up in his younger years, he had some ties to the muslim world that he is sympathetic to. >> i just want to be clear before we let you go.
>> there's no connection between him and terrorists. >> and i'm not making that connection. my thesis is that he has an emotional tie to islam, and that has clouded his judgment in attacking the jihadists. last word. >> well, that's your opinion. i think that he's a devout christian. i see no evidence that he has fomented terrorism in any way. he's the man that gave the call to kill osama bin laden. >> i don't know if that was a difficult call. again, we appreciate your point of view. did you know that one of general washington's officers tried to assassinate him? and miller on the hillary and miller on the hillary clinton-fbi deal and
you won't see these folks at the post office. and miller on the hillary clinton-fbi deal and they have businesses to run. they have passions to pursue. how do they avoid trips to the post office? stamps.com mail letters, ship packages, all the services of the post office right on your computer. get a 4 week trial, plus $100 in extras including postage and a digital scale. go to stamps.com/tv and never go to the post office again.
thank you for staying with us. i'm bill o'reilly. let's get right to the sage of southern california. joining us from santa barbara. so miller, when you heard yesterday the fbi director say no charges against secretary clinton, what went through your mind? >> well, i was surprised, because he was dropping bread crumbs and then whipped out a vegan scone. it's like putting in happily ever after at the end of "the exorcist." i thought he was going to lay into her, then backed off. it looks like hillary, the only way we're going get her eventually, is if she kicks in a hotel door in vegas to claim
some bobbleheads that are hers. i guaranty today she's on a better private server. >> so you say the only redemption hillary clinton has is if she pulls an o.j. simpson and goes in and steals memorabilia and gets caught, that's your analysis? >> in a country that's increasingly creepy, the creepiest person gets to be the head creep. so i guess she's going to be president. >> it is pretty bizarre. let's go to your state, california. the university of redlands, i guess that's a treehouse up in the forest -- >> i think that's where that mendell goes. >> any way, they want men to focus on masculinity with a dude's understanding diversity project. >> dudes, i don't know what it
stands for. but can i get a second over here to adjust all the new mail. i remember seeing bruce jenner on the cover of a magazine and now i'm supposed to digest this all in five seconds. give me a second to catch up. it's like he made blackjack 22. i can't get my head around it this quickly. >> are you going to enroll in that course? i think you can do that online. i think you should. >> billy, i am -- here's what i am right now. female about to go back to male. that's how far out there i am. >> you heard about the hot dog eating contest. in buffalo, new york, they have a kale eating contest. are you involved? >> listen, billy, all i know, if that asian kid could eat 70 hot dogs, i can't imagine how much
kale he can throw down. it's like an entire farm's worth of kale he'll be able to jam down his gullet. all these people that want to get you healthy, they want you to live forever so they can constantly tell you what to do. leave me alone! i want to eat a hot dog. i don't want to eat your kale. you're going to come in with a speech therapist and correct my death rattle. lay off me! >> i agree with you, miller. my makeup artist, she has stuff, i'm like, is that food? why don't you eat the wallpaper. finally in china, lady gaga has been listed as a hostile foreign force by the chinese government. >> i think she met with the dalai lama and they're not going to let her into the country. imagine that's the reason you don't get let into the country. you can show up somewhere in a dress made of meat you can get into the country. by the way, i'm not going to the kale eating competition.
i'm going to a competition where the asian kid is eating lady gaga's dress. >> it's worse than that. dalai lama is taking on tony bennett's place and they're going on tour with lady gaga. nice to see you. ♪ i left my heart in nepal >> no, he's in tibet. martha mccallum on deck. another police shooting, this one in louisiana. martha is next.
37-year-old black man, and that is leading to racial tension. >> police say they were dispatched after an anonymous 911 call. when they arrived, two officers confronted 37-year-old alton sterling and things escalated. this video, reportedly shot by a witness from inside a car, and not verified by nbc news, shows what happened next. it shows the two police officers tackling and wrestling sterling to the ground. what happens next is not as clear. the camera turning away from the incident. seconds later, someone can be heard saying "he's got a gun" followed by audible gunshots. >> now with more information, martha mccallum. so the man who was killed, right, did he have a gun? >> we don't know for sure. the owner of the store claims that he saw the police hold him down and that after the shooting they pulled a gun out of his
pocket. we also know that the caller who called in claimed that the man in the red shirt who was selling the cds had threatened him with a gun. >> i don't know what the cds thing is. >> he was selling cds and his wife said that's what he did. he was in a shelter, a transition shelter. he did five years in prison. his priors include marijuana possession, resisting arrest, and in 2000, he was convicted of one count of carnal knowledge with a joouvenile. >> do we know anymore than that? >> we don't at this point. we know that there were cameras. there's a camera inside the store, there's a dash cam. the word is that the cameras that they had on the officers were dislocated during the altercation. we don't know if that video is going to be good or not. we have to wait.
we have to be very careful. but those are the facts as we know them. we know he suffered several gunshots in the chest and back. that comes from involved, they' suspended. >> they have been suspended, that's standard operating procedure for anyone involved in an incident like that, one is a four-year police officer, one is three years in baton rouge. >> those are the facts. we'll follow the case, legal will look into it. you know, we want to be fair. >> the justice department has already opened a civil investigation into this. >> the feds are already down there, so that's a good thing. >> that's fine. >> you want all the top investigators down there. all right, in baltimore there have been a few looters, remember, after the freddie gray incident, massive looting in town. some of them have been prosecuted, and the latest one really got hit. roll it. >> prosecutors say 20-year-old donte bets was the key player in
the riots, looting, setting fires, and even attacking police. squirting lighter fluid on a pile of propane cylinders, this infamous photos was one of many that went viral. the man in the picture will now spend 15 years behind bars. >> wow, 15 years, huh? >> 15 years behind bars. they had photos and video of him, he wrecked police cars, also looted a pharmacy there, but it needs to be mentioned he also in this same charge included in the 15 years is that he shot a woman, did not kill her, during a drug deal. she spade 20 for heroin, he claimed she owed $40. >> he's a drug dealer, took advantage of the freddie gray thing to commit even more crimes. there have been others convicted, how many others? >> four others convicted and a couple more in the pipeline, but they are clearly sending the message they want these to be dealt with very seriously, and this young man didn't deny it at
my moment to go wild on the police. that was his quote. >> he didn't plea not guilty? he said he did it. long rap sheet, obviously, a drug dealer, right? >> he has prior convictions, as well, drugs and assault. >> martha maccallum, everybody, thank you, we appreciate it. back to present day, thomas jefferson, was he a good guy or not?
